Unlocking Bootloader and Rooting are two different things but Rules and Regulations consider them in same category. They are same according to Rules but in real they are two totally different things.

Red face Unlock Bootloader of Sony Xperia C
Sony Xperia C is the best smart phone that can compete with all galaxy series very easily.

Unlocking Bootloader on xperia C (MediaTek processor phone) would enable developers like us to CUSTOMIZE the software and hence utilise the hardware of the phone to its maximum capacity and even can modify as per the user needs and change the UI of the phone! Please Support For the noble cause of Developers !

Thanks
